Well done Jean.  We have a brood of Blue Tits, which should be fledging in a few days time. Right next door to the Blue Tit box we have a Linnet nesting in a Pyracantha. It is great watching all the comings and goings.

May In Your Garden

Here in west Suffolk it topped 15C, raining all morning till midday then fine. We did have a little blue sky and sunshine this evening.  From our garden this evening I recorded a Hobby and 5 Swift, both new birds for the year.

Our lawns squelch and ooze water when you walk on them. I have used every thing I have that holds water to keep decanting my water butts.

Hi Coatsworth, it sounds like your caterpillar is a moth but not sure which.

Orange Tips food plant is Garlic Mustard or Jack by the Hedge.  As other have said they are lovely butterflies. I found a dead male in my greenhouse last weekend, which did not please me.

What's the weather like in your area?

We have just had about 36 hours of solid rain and strongish ne winds.

Suffolk is very soggy right now and I am conisdering building an ark. This is the wettest drought in history. We did see the mystery ball of fire this evening which was a real treat.

I have 3 smallish raised beds and have been considering SFG. It might be something I start next season as I missed the boat this year.
